Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Three (3) cooper tire failures, discoverer H/T, 265/70R16, dot number utc2C5T2305. 9 Oct 2013, took vehicle in for regular maintenance. Received courtesy inspection that included tire tread/condition check. Checks were good with outer/inner tread depth of 8/5, 7/5, 8/8, 8/8. tires rotated and front end alignment accomplished due to uneven wear on front tires.

Purchase 2 new tires for front, rotated both 8/8 tires to rear and had them inspected at tire dealer who said that there was no need to replace and that there was several thousand miles left of use. 10 May 2014, approx 3500 miles after 9 Oct 2013 tire rotation/front end alignment, left rear 8/8 tire tread separated on interstate damaging left rear wheel well, fuel line, left rear quarter panel, left rear door, left running board, and rear bumper.

Failure reguarding to tires....in particular to toyo tires / open country, 265/R70/16. He problem is a safety issue, the tires are cracking in the tread grooves. And not just one tire all four tires, to top that all off these are the second set....the first one's were already replaced for the same problem. The originals had only less than 10,000miles when I, had noticed the cracking, toyo tires replaced all four because of the defect( all four tire were cracked). The replacement set also cracked the same way, but I, had just noticed the defect....almost 45,000miles later (again all four tires are cracked the same way. I have been told different and changing stories. What I want to know are these tires safe....I'm worried about my families safety, are these tires going to explode as they drive on the highway(we have a large SUV). This defect should be checked out. I can send a copy of the bills and the authorization numbers for the replacements (second set / all four). Also I am willing to send the tires. How can this be 8 tires all crack the same way, is this a big defect" or does the, number of deaths, box need a number in it first"

Purchased a Toyota Sequoia 7/01. Been in and out of service ever since. We are currently on our 3rd set of brakes, 3rd trip computer, and 3rd set of tires, 2nd battery, 2nd amplifier. Car only has 33,000 miles many other problems including some electrical. Currently waiting for word from dealership on problems with transmission and fuel system. Everything up to this point (except tires #3) has been covered by warranty. Dealership got a case # with Toyota so these problems will be covered if they persist. Feel like we are on the path to a lemon. Don't know how else to proceed. Sent Toyota a letter detailing problems, asking to possibly help us get into another vehicle. We are at the point where it is a new concern everyday with this car. Help!!!!!!
